This is very much a bug in nvidia-graphics-drivers-340. One can debate
if software-properties should or shouldn't purge (though traditionally,
the argument was that silent frontends shouldn't purge because the user
hasn't explicitly asked for that), but if a removed package's unpurged
conffiles cause the system to misbehave, that package needs to be
rethought to avoid that situation.

Status in software-properties package in Ubuntu:
Following a successful install and subsequent use of nvidia-340 -
uninstallation of nvidia via Additional Drivers led to a reboot to a
desktop at 640x480 px.
Investigation found an nvidia created file left on the system
blacklisting nouveau, deleted file and rebooted to normal desktop.
Didn't think about ubuntu-reporting this - can try and replicate and
apport-collect if it's of any use.
